Since bursting onto the scene in Mexican literature, the work of Serna plays within it a provocative and critical role. His pen never played for complacency either for his sharp critical sense or his corrosive sense of humor. The trustee Jesus Pastrana is one of those rare officials who serve the citizens instead of using their positions as a political springboard or tools for profit. Exemplary father, efficient administrator, spotless tracker of venality in all its forms, has never sought the media glitz, despite amply deserving it. How does Cuernavaca know? City of Eternal Spring, favorite city of viceroys, politicians and businessmen, instead of weekend many Bogota. In this city of high walls and splendid gardens, exclusive residences and apparent calm, the new novel by Enrique Serna, The Double Life of Jesus unfolds. In The Double Life of Jesus, no one is spared, not Obdulio Narvaez, governor of Morelos, or Anibal Medrano, Mayor of Cuernavaca, nor César Larios, president of the state steering committee PAD. Following the pattern of his first three novels, Miss Mexico, One dreamed he was king and The fear of animals, Enrique Serna, his conversational style of natural and believable voices, presents a portrait of our reality, politicians' pacts with the narco "delivery" of mayoral candidates from other parties, scandals video, AUC, kidnappings and threats. "If you're not with me, you are against God," he said to Jesus in full campaign.
"Jesús Pastrana, el protagonista de La doble vida de Jesús, es síndico del ayuntamiento de Cuernavaca que quiere convertirse en presidente municipal a través de la firme convicción de ser recto, legal y justo. En medio del camino, se le atraviesa el narco, que ha infiltrado en todo los niveles de gobierno, y el amor escandaloso de Leslie, un travesti, que podría ser una piedrita en su carrera política."--Milenio.
